We are glad to inform you more about the most effective anti-wrinkle, anti-aging, and rejuvenating skin treatment that is Botox Cosmetic.
What is Botox, its Benefits, and How does it Work?
Wrinkles, fine lines, and facial creases are the unfortunate consequences of aging. Botox is an injectable cosmetic that provides a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment to treat signs of aging on your face. Doctors have been using Botox cosmetics for years to treat wrinkles, fine lines, and other medical conditions. Botox is a botulinum toxin that is obtained from the bacterium clostridium botulinum.
The other available brands of botulinum toxin are Dysport, Xeomin, and myobloc, with particular medical uses. In addition to the anti-aging benefits, Botox is also a treatment of choice for the clinical management of hyperhidrosis, cervical dystonia, Blepharospasm, strabismus, migraine, muscle spasticity, and overactive bladder. The injectable medicament blocks the chemical signal from the nerves that cause muscle contraction. The effect of the injection is to temporarily relax the facial muscles that cause wrinkles on the forehead, areas around the eyes, between the brows, and other facial areas that start generating lines due to excessive use of expressions.
The aesthetic benefits of Botox injections are listed as under;
Botox is an ideal treatment for men and women who don't want to go under the knife for their facelift, brow lift, and other signs of aging.
Botox injections help turn back the hands of time by providing younger-looking and smooth skin.
Botox injections work on forehead creases, drooping brows, crow’s feet, and frown lines.
Treatment of wrinkles in the lower two-thirds of the face
Provides treatment of bunny lines (Nosalis)
Treats radial lip lines (Orbicularis Oris)
Chin lines (Mentalis)
Botox injections provide quick and safe outcomes, as results appear quickly after the treatment.
Botox injections are safe when injected under the expertise of an aesthetic practitioner, cosmetic surgeon, or nurse injector.
Zero to no downtime is associated with the treatment procedure.
Results of the treatment last for three months, and repeated sessions can provide more lasting facial rejuvenation.
Patients aged eighteen or above with no underlying diseases or skin conditions are ideal for getting Botox treatment. Patients allergic to cow's milk, pregnant, and breastfeeding are not ideal to undergo Botox shots. The treatment procedure is simple and effective. Dr. Allyson Berkey always discusses your expectations and motivations before giving the treatment. Also, your medical history, history of medications, and certain health conditions such as drooping eyelids, nerve conditions, difficulty swallowing, forehead muscle weakness, and breathing problems are the important factors that must be discussed before getting into the treatment protocol.
The process starts with mild cleaning your face and careful mapping of targeted areas. You will only be bothered by the mild needle prick, which is already reduced by applying local numbing cream or gel. The aesthetic staff will provide you with ice packs to apply to the targeted areas to reduce post-procedure swelling or pressure.
The treatment takes twenty to twenty-five minutes in the entire injection process, including preparation, injection, and after-care. You will be given an instruction set or after-care routine before leaving the facility.
